While giving a speech ahead of Donald Trump in Ohio today, the former New York mayor stated that Islamic extremists hadn't carried out any attacks in the US before Obama became President. In 2008. Seven years after 9/11.
"Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States," said Giuliani. "They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office."
Oh but we definitely did though, as Twitter was quick to point out. Because Twitter #neverforgets.
This is not even the first time Rudy Giuliani, who is known for what's been called an "obsession" with the national tragedy, has erased 9/11 from his version of history to make a political point. In 2010, while suggesting that Obama could learn from George W. Bush, Giuliani claimed: "We had no domestic attacks under Bush."
Someone tell Giuliani to write "9/11" on his hand every morning with a permanent marker. That always helps me remember things.
